A new board game is coming for the Lord of the Rings from Games Workshop. I have a fondness for the beautiful and well designed games that are out on the market today, even to the point of having board game nights hosted here for the past decade or so. While a GW board game would be up on my list to check out even one for the Lord of the Rings, the board design itself looks very uninspiring, and something I would expect to be better of from Games Workshop. Lets hope there is some excellent gameplay and possibly a re-design of the board.

Welcome master Hobbits to The Lord of the Rings: Quest to Mount Doom board game! This brand new board game pits players against one another in a game of skill, wits and above all, fun, as you race around the board in search of the most precious of items – The One Ring.
Quest to Mount Doom lets players recreate the epic journey that the Fellowship took as they journeyed to Mount Doom – but with a competitive twist! Each player is hunting for the One Ring that is hidden somewhere in Middle-earth. The aim is simple: find the Ring and take it to Mount Doom to see it destroyed. However, you don’t want other players to know you have it, they will only try and take it from you – so keep it secret, keep it safe!
You’ll be able to pick your favourite characters from the Fellowship, each with their own unique ability, and use the wide array of item and event cards to aid your cause, or disrupt your opponents as you search for the Ring. Finding the Ring is the easy part, taking it to Mount Doom will take every ounce of skill and cunning you have – just watch out for the Eye of Sauron!
Whilst we don’t have a confirmed release date for this new game yet, keep your eyes peeled for more information later in the year. In the meantime, the best way to keep up to date with all the announcements is to follow the Forge World Facebook page.
